I hope I am clear now...if not please let me know....

/span/pp style="margin-left: 36pt"span style="font-family:Times New Roman; font-size:12pt"Now we look at the final part of verse eleven. Just as the others, it was Christ who gave us our pastor-teacher. This office continues today in our churches. The question that arises here is whether or not Paul means pastors and teachers as separate or as one. I believe that this is one office because the "some to be" is not separating pastors and teachers.
/span/pp style="margin-left: 36pt"span style="font-family:Times New Roman; font-size:12pt"The way this is written seems to put these two terms—pastors, teachers—into one category of gift. I have heard one say this: In order for one to be a pastor, it is necessary for one to be a teacher, but to be a teacher; one does not need to be a pastor. Is this an accurate statement?

Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.--Matthew 5:48
Who is worthy? Do you think you are worthy to recieve glory and honor? Everyone wants to feel particularly wanted and needed. Sometimes we even desire to be recognized for what we do. Whether that is at home, work, school, church or wherever we are, we have that inward pull to be shown some type of praise. But in reality, you and I really don't deserve much in the eyes of a perfect Father. We are sinners, deserving of hell at best. Yet, God thinks so much of us that He sent Christ to restore us to the rightful place of honor in His house. It is only through this act of love do we get any sense of pride.
As christians we tend to put ourselves above those who are unsaved. We place others below us thinking we are somehow better than they. Did we forget where we come from? How far Christ came for us sinners? We all are sinners, justly deserving of death.
Turn to Revelation chapter five for it says:
